Alexander Technique at the South Bank Alexander Centre

Alexander Technique and Posture

The Alexander Technique teaches effortless movement and a
light and easy way of being upright. The lessons are
enjoyable and there are no exercises!

* The Alexander Technique gave Kevin Kline "about an inch
and a half of additional height."

* John Cleese says "I find The Alexander Technique very
helpful in my work. Things happen without you trying. They
get to be light and relaxed."

If you want to find out more about the Alexander Technique
and how it can help you, contact us to arrange a free
20-minute introductory session.
